Permanent makeup or micropigmentation is a medical tattooing process that allows pigment to be placed in the dermis layer of the skin to resemble the look of traditional makeup. It can be applied permanently to look just like you would apply it daily. Some opt for a natural look just to enhance their features, while others prefer a more dramatic look.
Permanent makeup is perfect for those too busy to keep applying it, those who want to look fresh when they wake up, or for those who have an active lifestyle where reapplying makeup may be too cumbersome. For those engaging in any activity that would normally cause eyeliner to run, eyebrows to be wiped off completely, or for those who are troubled with lipstick bleeding, you won’t have to worry any longer, you will have color after any activity.
A local anesthesia or topical numbing cream is placed prior to the tattooing. This helps control pain & bleeding, which allows the pigment to be placed deep enough in the skin to ensure its longevity.
Lips can be made to look very natural or very “made up”. Options for lips include:
Many of us lose color along the border of our lips as we age. Some prefer to have a very natural flesh tone color put back in their lips to make them appear fuller & to define their own natural shape. Others want their lips to look as if they have just applied their favorite lipliner & lipstick. If you have a color that you absolutely love, bring it in with you so we can custom-blend our pigments to match. If you are undecided on exactly what lip color you want, it is best to be conservative. We can always add more dramatic pigmentation later on. Included in your initial fee is one touch-up visit.
Micropigmentation can mimic the appearance of hair in the brow line. Anyone who desires more fullness of the brow will appreciate the time saved not applying makeup. Those who used to apply pencil can go swimming, play tennis, or wipe their forehead without having to reapply makeup.
For chemotherapy patients, this is a wonderful way to keep a beautiful eyebrow shape to frame your face, even if you lose your eyebrow hair.
A subtle, natural look, mimicking thousands of tiny eyelashes within the implantation of pigment in the lash line, is very popular. Shadowing of color can be added for a soft, natural look, or if desired, a bolder more definitive line can be achieved depending on the client’s wishes.
Whether you are a breast cancer patient who needs areolar reconstruction using medical tattooing, or you are just displeased with a too-light color of your areola, we can create a very natural look for you.
We also offer scar camouflage tattooing, which can cover some scars & make them less noticeable. Using lighter pigments can create the illusion of a less depressed or less reddened scar.
